Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) launched a bizarre rant while stumping for GOP Georgia Senate candidate Herschel Walker in a final campaign push on Sunday. And today is Election Day for the runoff, so we're up against this. Republicans are campaigning on stupidity. And against Kale. Kennedy hates Kale.

"These woke, high IQ stupid people, they walk around with zip lock bags of kale that they eat to give them energy," the very serious Senator said. "If you want to eat kale, that's up to you. I don't eat kale. You know why? Because kale tastes to me like I'd rather be fat."

"These woke high IQ stupid people are easy to recognize," said Kennedy, who graduated from Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia School of Law before attending Magdalen College, Oxford. "They hate George Washington. They hate Thomas Jefferson. They hate Dr. Suess, and they hate Mr. Potato Head."

Well, jinkies, that does it, guys. We should support Walker, then. That was such a convincing argument.

Kennedy also referred to Walker as "gentle and a gentleman," even though he stuck a gun at his now ex-wife's head on more than one occasion.

We've had our fill of ridiculously stupid individuals, so Americans disallowed people like Sarah Palin and Donald Trump to regain power.

I hope I'm right, and Walker is going to have a terrible day:

I agree with him about Kale, though.
